Owe IRS Back Taxes?

If you owe back taxes, or if you've been threatened with, or are currently experiencing, an IRS levy of your bank account, lien on your property, garnishment of your wages, seizure of your assets or the denial or termination of a previous installment agreement, let our Tax Defense Partners team represent you to fully resolve your IRS problems once and for all. We can stop most IRS levies and seizures when you hire us by filing an IRS collection appeal on your behalf.

Whether the IRS is demanding full payment of back taxes up-front or a payment plan that is higher than you can afford, we can set up an arrangement to pay the IRS for the lowest monthly amount allowed by law.

Don't be afraid of the IRS anymore.

If you owe less than $10,000 in back taxes: and you have a clean IRS record and filed ALL of your previous tax returns, you can contact the IRS directly and arrange a 36 month payment plan.

If you owe more than $10,000: Call the TDP team to stop levies, seizures, or wage garnishments, and to permanently solve your tax problem, as appropriate and available for your situation.

irs settlementOffer in Compromise

If you not only cannot presently pay your back taxes in full, and now owe the IRS more than you could ever afford to pay, a properly done Offer in Compromise, if accepted by the IRS, lets you satisfy your tax debt with one smaller amount in a full and final payment. You have to be able to prove that you have no reasonable way to pay the full amount. You are much better off engaging a TDP team to work this strategy for you because taxpayers who try this on their own, without knowing the current guidelines and enforcement standards, often put themselves at risk of not qualifying for a settlement or paying more than the lowest amount allowed by law.

2)-Installment-Payment-Plans-and-Partial-Pay-InstallmentsInstallment Payment Plans and Partial Pay Installments

If you can't pay your back taxes in full, but could pay them back over time, we can negotiate for you a monthly payment plan that takes account of your unique financial circum-stances – including getting to decide on your own monthly due date. Once we put in place the Installment Agreement, the IRS will stop levies, seizures and garnishments, and not start them up again as long as you make all payments and file all of your tax returns on time. Additionally, any future "failure to pay penalties" are usually reduced by 50%.

3) Delinquent Tax ReturnsDelinquent Tax Returns

You must file all of your late tax returns because until you do, the IRS will not entertain any type of tax settlement or payment plan to help you pay back taxes.

4) Innocent Spouse ReliefInnocent Spouse Relief

If you can prove that you are an innocent spouse (or ex-spouse), as defined in the Internal Revenue Code, you may not be subject to the taxes caused by another person. Our TDP team can frame this position for you, present the evidence and relieve you of tax obligations that are not yours.

5) Offshore Bank AccountsOffshore Bank Accounts

If you have funds in foreign financial institutions, properly disclosing your offshore account can reduce the chances of criminal prosecution and minimize what would otherwise be severe IRS penalties. If you have any bank or investment account(s) outside of US territory not disclosed on your 1040(s), you will be better advised to engage TDP to help you proceed in your best interest.

6) Payroll Tax ProblemsPayroll Tax Problems

If you owe back taxes on delinquent payroll and employment taxes, it is important to resolve these swiftly to protect the future of your company and your individual financial wellbeing. The IRS assigns a much higher priority to the collection of employment taxes than income taxes because it is money that you withheld from your employees paychecks that you failed to pay over to the government. TDP teams are experts in permanently resolving payroll tax problems.

7) Investment Fraud VictimInvestment Fraud Victims

If you owe back taxes paid on phantom profits from a fraudulent investment ("Ponzi") scheme, you may be eligible to recoup 30% to 40% of your losses. This highly technical and complex process can help you reduce taxes paid in previous years, resulting in refunds with interest.

8) Collection Statute Expiration DateBack Taxes Can Expire – There is a Statute of Limitations on IRS Collections

The IRS is (generally) prohibited from collecting taxes that were assessed by a tax filing or audit more than ten years earlier. Your TDP team can perform a "Collection Statute Expiration Date" ("CSED") analysis to determine when you might be free of the obligation to make certain tax payments. You will need an expert to guide you through the many exceptions and obstacles to having this limitation work in your favor.

9) Filing for BankruptcyFiling for Bankruptcy to Discharge IRS Tax Debt

As a last resort, and if the taxes are eligible for discharge, you can file for bankruptcy if the IRS rejects your IRS compromise settlement or payment plan. However, if you are eligible to have your tax debt discharged in bankruptcy, you will need a separately engaged, seasoned bankruptcy attorney to help you. TDP does not provide bankruptcy services, but does work with your bankruptcy counsel in the process to assist with the minimization or extinguishment of income tax obligations.

10) Freedom of Information RequestsFreedom of Information Requests

To help you, your TDP team will utilize "Freedom of Information" laws to learn what information the tax authorities used to assess back taxes, interest and penalties against you. Knowing the basis of the charges is critical for the TDP team knowing how to challenge them properly on your behalf.

11) Wage GarnishmentWage Garnishment

Facing wage garnishment can be devastating. If the IRS is taking money from your paycheck, you can count on TDP to release or modify the garnishment generally within 24-48 hours.

12) Bank LevyBank Levy

Don’t let the IRS seize your bank account! If your financial account has been frozen by the IRS, TDP can typically get it released or modified within 24-48 hours.

13) Penalty AbatementPenalty Abatement

The IRS forgives penalties on a case-by-case basis. TDP knows how to make the case for you to fit within IRS guidelines if your circumstances support penalty abatement. The TDP team can usually get rid of all or the majority of your penalty if you have a reasonable cause argument or fit within other legally defined categories.

14) Audit RepresentationAudit Representation

Have you received an audit notice from the IRS? Let the TDP audit defense team speak for you and handle all the correspondence and any meetings required for the audit. If necessary and justified, TDP will apply for an Audit Reconsideration to reverse or reduce any additional tax assessed in an audit.

15) Currently Non-CollectableCurrently Not Collectible

Don’t have any money to pay the IRS? Your TDP team will get the government to stand down and not bother you while you get back on your feet.

16) Tax LienTax Lien

Do you need to repair your credit score, sell your property, apply for a credit card, buy a car, etc.? TDP will work with the IRS to get the lean released or subordinated so you can go forward with your economic life – and then resolve your tax problem permanently.

Received an audit notice? Let your TDP team fight for you. Our tax attorneys will tell you where you stand, what your best options are, and negotiate with the IRS on your behalf. Our tax lawyers will create the case for you and negotiate against the Examination Division of the IRS.

How to get started:

CALL OUR TOLL FREE NUMBER to get a FREE & Confidential Analysis of YOUR situation.
Let our professionals solve YOUR tax problem.

The process:
You tell us your situation; have us review your most recent IRS notices, and your current financial status. This is 100% free to you and is strictly confidential.
Our professionals evaluate your situation compared to the tax laws and regulations.
We tell you what we think is the best strategy for paying the lowest amount in taxes allowed by law, on a schedule you can afford.
We will not suggest you work with us unless we think we can help you.
When we agree to help solve your tax problem, we will handle all communications. You will not have to visit or speak with an IRS officer or agent.

Who will be helping you?
If you decide to let us help solve your tax problem, and we accept your case, you will be vigorously and professionally defended by a close-knit team of experienced certified tax resolution specialists: Attorneys, CPAs, Enrolled Agents and Tax Professionals with extensive expertise and many years of experience achieving exceptional outcomes for thousands of clients just like you. Our on-staff professionals conduct them-selves at all times consistent with our firm's professional and ethical standards and in good-faith with respect to you, our client, and the tax authorities which whom we deal each day. We don't use "contractors" or farm out work to anyone who is not employed and supervised full-time by us to negotiate a resolution to your tax problem.

How we charge for solving your tax problem.
We will quote you one, fixed (flat) amount scaled to our pre-agreed scope of services that is determined before you hire us. We will tell you what steps we must take to execute the resolution strategy we agree on.* Generally, you will not be required to pay the full amount up front. Depending on the steps involved, and the time required, you will pay us 30% - 50% of the total fee so we can start work, and the balance in 2 – 6 equal monthly payments. We can charge a flat fee because based on the information we obtain from you from our initial consultation, we can frame a scope of work to settle your specific tax prob-lem. The scope of work and the flat fee we charge for it should not vary unless we have not been informed of material information in the first place, or you subsequently decide to increase our scope of work. We do not charge for faxes, photocopies, phone calls, correspondence or meetings as do typical law and accounting firms.

Are you eligible for help? Getting the answer to that question first, and up-front, is one of the most important services we provide – and we do it for FREE.
Every taxpayer's case is different. Whether or not you are eligible for help is the most important first question for you and for us, because unlike many less ethical competitors, we will not take your case, and your money, if we don't think we can help you. For example, most taxpayers DO NOT qualify for an offer in compromise, that is, paying less tax than the IRS says you owe, or for "penalty abatement," which is a reduction of penalties the IRS may have assessed against you, because the tax regulations have very strict guidelines defining who qualifies. Even if you don't qualify for these programs, however, there are strategies we can employ to work out reasonable payment plans that let you keep your bank accounts, and avoid wage garnishments – but if you don't qualify for an offer in compromise or penalty abatement, unlike some of our competitors, we are not going to tell you that these are realistic options for you. Our goal is to offer you a clear understanding of the process for resolving your tax problem and to leave you with realistic expectations as to probable outcomes so you can make a well-informed, rational decision to help yourself.

Why hire Tax Defense Partners to solve your tax problem?
You CAN represent yourself before the IRS, just like you CAN represent yourself in court without an attorney. Would you? The procedural rules, and the guidelines for what settlements and compromises will and will not be accepted, are complex and not well-publicized. Many, if not most, taxpayers find dealing with the IRS frustrating, time-consuming and intimidating about matters that are usually costly and consequential to the taxpayer's economic life. If you can send in a team to represent you that has handled and obtained excellent results in thousands of cases nationwide, and it makes economic sense to do so, wouldn't you?

You don't have to live in fear any more.
Our team of Attorneys, CPAs. And Tax Relief Professionals can help you reduce back taxes penalties and interest.
